  1. [SOLVED] Running "qm start" in a cron shell script

    oops, sorrr, typo! I meant $(which qm) start 800 the construct $(which command) returns command with its full path... so it is expected to be portable between diffrent machines. however, this proved not to work. I used the full path and then it worked. Strange: in all my other uses of...

  3. [SOLVED] Running "qm start" in a cron shell script

    I face a stupid problem: - I want to run "qm start 800" in a bash script - this works fine when I run directly the shell - but does not work when the same script is placed as a cron job. - the job is created and run by root - I have tested the usual tricks in such situarions, with and without...
  4. Failing to add an OSD

    Thx for the link. My understanding of this text was "do not use RAID disk-arrays as Ceph disks", not "do not user Raid controllers even in non-Raid mode". It so happens that previuosly I had configured and used Ceph with this computer and disk and 2 other hosts each with 1 additional HD. One of...
  5. Failing to add an OSD

    The other 2 machines in the cluster have a similar config (but different hardware models): 2 SSDs in RAID 10 with hard controller, and 2 extra HD connected in non-Raid mode on the RAID-controller, each HD hosting an OSD (so the clster is 3 hosts, and aims at 5 OSDs, currently 2x2=4 OSDs)
  6. Failing to add an OSD

    The machine has 2SSDs in hardware Raid 10. It also has an extra HD which is connected in non-raid to the raid controller

    Any hint or suggestion, anyone?

    I have repeating failure at installing an osd on one node. - installing thru GUI seems to work... but the OSD is not visible - installing thru command line seems to work... but the OSD is not visible either eg:: # ceph-disk zap /dev/sdb Caution: invalid backup GPT header, but valid main header...
  10. [SOLVED] How to configure serial / terminal to connect to a VM guest from the PVE host?

    I updated the Proxmox wiki page with the Ubuntu info, so that all the information is there. My update might need some changes to be coherent with the grub part of the wiki page
  11. [SOLVED] How to configure serial / terminal to connect to a VM guest from the PVE host?

    Hi, Thx for your answer help, even if you were in a somewhat sarcastic mood... Not sure I understood the pun about restart / reboot. No problem. Before even posting the question, I had done my homework and had read the wiki article. however it is in fact useless if the ttyS do not exist yet I...
  12. [SOLVED] How to configure serial / terminal to connect to a VM guest from the PVE host?

    1 - B-) I happen to use frequently the Linux reboot command. 2 - Currently I have a mix of 4.4 and 5.1 hosts. because some prod VMs and CTs are waiting a favorable time. Consequently some hosts have only VNC for shell access with WebUI. VNC without copy paste is a nightmare with my French...
  13. [SOLVED] How to configure serial / terminal to connect to a VM guest from the PVE host?

    I still have problem to configure networks for my guests VMs: the console (from web) has lots of limtations. So I was hoping I could connect from the host to the guest VM by a simple qm terminal xxx, but I all get is the prompt: starting serial terminal on interface serial0 (press control-O to...
  14. Struggling with pools, storages...

    Not sure if I look at pveceph status (attached txt file) As I stated in my initial question, not sure what storage means in your sentence... which command would give me that? pveceph lspools gives me Name size pg_num used internes 3...
  15. Struggling with pools, storages...

    I believe so: the CT or VM creation is attempted after logging as root on the GUI. Storage cfg displays admin as a username for the ceph/rbd cluster. Is that OK? What puzzles me if that my storage list does not show at least the local storage...

    B-) Seems there is a discrepancy between GUI (above) and the file... root@myserv3:~# cat /etc/pve/storage.cfg dir: local path /var/lib/vz content backup,iso,images,rootdir,vztmpl maxfiles 0 rbd: Machines monhost myserv4,myserv3 username admin krbd...
  17. Struggling with pools, storages...

    My problem: When creating a CT or a VM with the GUI, I cannot access the storage: the storage list stays empty, see capture below. What should be done to be able to select one of my storage spaces? Background info: I had some problems to set up my proxmox cluster and my ceph server, sonce my...

    If this is evident for everyone, could someone give me the answer?
  19. Struggling with pools, storages...

    English is not my mother tongue, so I'm probably missing some evident subtleties between several word meanings. (My final goal: using ceph storage on my 3 nodes cluster for containers and VMs) I feel somewhat confused at how are related - ceph storage - ceph pools - proxmox storage - proxmox...
